A Moment of Grace
Gratitude Day 7

Chimp 8th eMail...

Happily walking above the chasm of grief, despair, and depression is our mission. Today, let’s focus on the first big stone…

1—Take a breath, calm your thoughts, then THINK about this quote…

“I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.” – Brene Brown

  Or this scripture passage…

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights.” ~ James 1:17

2—Now, add to your Values List*…

Choose the best word that comes closest to what you value most. Write it on your list…

Excitement • Health • Competence • Results • Games


3—Write this in your own hand—large & bold. Fold neatly/wad into a ball. Touch/squeeze it every time you get anxious. Tonight, file away for later.

Today My Challenge…
Is to be the person I am meant to be, thankful, grateful,
and fully engaged in living my best life.

AWARENESS: Remember that your challenges are simply a requirement for a better life. Believe you are up to the challenge because you are. We all have much to be thankful for. Sometimes it is easy to see, sometimes not. Prospering from an attitude of gratitude means winning the challenges in life to experience true joy… you can feel it. It is real. Turning challenges into joy with gratitude is real.

God Bless,
